United - A Star is Born!

United - A Star is Born!

It truly does look as if a cult-hero has been born at Old Trafford.

Two goals in his last two games, both match-winning, have given fresh impetus to the belief that the little lad from Mexico is going to be the next big United striking sensation.

The supporters have genuinely taken little Javier to their hearts and with Sir Alex Ferguson enthusing over his recent displays and confirming that he deserves all the accolades currently coming his way, many are inferring the youngster has a golden future.

Therefore it probably doesn`t come as any surprise, and a fact pointed out by the Daily Star, that last night in the United mega-store, the staff were far busier applying the name Chicarito to the replica #14 shirts than they were of any other United player.

A star is born!

Better not hype him up too soon.. He has scored against two teams with extremely static defenses. He's a relatively new commodity, once SaF plays him more, teams will read him and his movement and man mark him. With his size, he'll be shut out if man marked. Same thing happened with Macheda, eh? Teams know him more, so they defend better, even man mark him.

JT i think you're being rather critical of Macheda, fair dues he does got marked and treated as much more of a threat but Macheda still could've got a good couple of goals this season disregarding the man-marking hadn't his first-touch let him down. Truthfully I would think it would be hard to track Hernandez movement due to the amount of it e.g. his run from the half-way line against West Brom.

Hernandez is great and finally fills that natural goal-scorer slot that needed filling the best bit is he's still young and may develop even further.
